Calendar Cont...


This is what I have been working on for the past 2 months. I made 5 of these Calendar's for Mom's and Grandma's for Christmas.

Snow Babies

I took Luke and Hailey out to help me shovel the snow!

My new BFF

Hello Cricut! I have only had you for 24hrs, But I love you so much. Doesn't this look great in my craft room. I have debated about getting one for a long time. I am kicking myself now. This could have made so many projects so easy.

"O" Christmas Tree

I found this idea on stampalicous blog. I made these for my sister, to pass out as neighbor gifts. She took our family Christmas picture. I wanted to return the favor to her. Thanks Kim you are wonderful!

From This to

I saw this idea on another blog. They called it From This to That. They showed how they took something and made it new.


For those of you who knew me in high school, You know I have always loved the 70's. I am working on transforming my family room, into a swank 70's lounge. I think it's turning out pretty well. I was having a hard time finding decor. I decided to make my own. All of the Frames and vase were purchased at the DI. I added scrapbook paper to them. The large swirl picture I painted (amazing right!). I cut tree branches from the yard to put in the vase. I then added felt flowers onto the branches. Now if I could only find a 70's swag lamp!
